Help please! Dimensions not showing up in Viewport PS, layer not frozen

Help please, new to CAD this year while studying. 

Have come across issue: Dimensions not showing up in Viewport PS but do in my model, and the layer is not frozen.

I want them to display in viewport and have tried searching for solution, there was one that suggested thawing a layer, only mine isn't frozen. Any other suggestions?

What has happened,  is that you are using an annotative dimension style

and the annotative scale of your dimension is not the same as the scale of your 

viewport

 

2 choices to rectify this

1. Make the annotative scale of your dimension the same as the scale of your viewport

2. Make the dimension non annotative and scale up the features using "dim scale overall"

    to match the viewport scale, otherwise the text and arrowheads will be too small to read
